'Saru' (Japanese for Monkey) was inspired by a Japanese folk art monkey figurine. It is made from sumi ink and water based pigment brushed on to two hand carved blocks (black, pink). The body texture is lighter than the black line--this effect is achieved by shallow carving the monkey's body so that it doesn't make very strong contact with the baren (printing tool).
